Work Table I added a Tape Measure to the edge, very handy, Sewing Machine Drawers to the left hold paint brushes, stamps, inks ect.
Double door closet with doors open for storage with shoe bags hung on the inside come in very handy. When I was Very young and a new Mom this was my Sewing Closet and inside was a machine on a narrow table I would sew on when the children were napping:)
Once was a bookcase, now hold jars of supplies, kinda like a candy store to me:)
 To the left a pedestal shoe tree painted and placed on the top of the cabinet for laces, yarns and rolls of seam binding to crinkle:) Right side, bookcase, more jars of eye candy, in the center a wood burning fireplace that faces the other room
Mommy

Daddy
Welcome to My Creative Space,  my newly decorated Studio  dedicated to my beautiful Mom and handsome Daddy who helped me become the woman I am today. It all began last summer in my Family room. All my life I have worked here and there within my home and I finally realized that I was wasting a perfectly wonderful room that really didn't get totally used as it should be. With children grown and grandchildren visits I wanted something family friendly to be sure. Starting out with repainting and a total furniture re-arrangement, it worked better than I expected and this is where I spend most of my creative time. I still have my wonderful sewing room that provides extra storage and another machine but this is my "work central". I would like to thank our lovely hostess Karen of  My Desert Cottage for bringing is all together  to share space, storage ideas and peek into each others worlds for a weekend of fun and friendships. Karen we love you! Reposting this post to the wonderful Etsy Cottage Style Blog Party for "My Creative Space". Happy Monday!!
